Today is World Giraffe Day so, of course, I must recognize the day.
From the website:
“World Giraffe Day is an annual event to celebrate the longest-necked animal on the longest day or night (depending on which hemisphere you live!) of the year – 21 June – every year!”
What better way to recognize the day than to don my favorite giraffe shirt, made for me by Dr. Spo for a birthday gift 2 years ago. (I’m holding Morpheus, a giraffe buddy I received a few years ago while in the hospital recovering from surgery. I was basking in the wonders of morphine when I named him. Go figure.)
For those not in the know, aside from being a rabid comic book fan and dog lover, I am a collector of, and have great affection for, giraffes. The fascination started only 6 years ago, almost out of the blue, but my house has become giraffe central, as is evidenced by the following pictures I took this morning around the house:
So celebrate the day: put your neck out for someone, walk tall, dream big, and enjoy a tall drink!
